“A Little More Leyendecker” Exhibition at the Haggin Museum

Next Upcoming Date: Saturday, May 25 2019

With this special exhibition, The Haggin is pleased to offer “a little more Leyendecker” from the Haggin Museum’s collection so that you may enjoy the works of one of the most talented artists of the Golden Age of American Illustration.

February 2 - June 16, 2019

J. C. Leyendecker was America’s most popular illustrator during the early decades of the 20th century.  His artwork graced the covers of a host of national magazines, brought books and short stories to life, and helped sell a plethora of products from men’s clothing and underwear to motor oil and automobiles to coffee and breakfast cereal.

In the early 1950s, Haggin Museum began acquiring works by Leyendecker.  Today, the museum houses the largest public collection of his original art.  In 2017 the Haggin created a permanent installation on the third floor showcasing much of the collection.  However, even with the new Leyendecker Gallery, some of the Haggin’s collection remained in fine art storage.
